Horses are quite a category for themselves but if I really had to choose I'd say they're a little closer to doggos with all the loyalty, dependance and things.
Also, doggos are together with horses the man's best friend as everyone knows.
Cats are independent and selfish but are ok to have around to fight vermin so they're important, too.

This.

Also, horses' personalities vary so wildly by individual. So do dogs' and cats' for that matter!

Horses can be stoic and calm or sensitive and reactive. They can be outgoing or reticent. They can be playful or downright boring. They can be eager to please or angry and resentful. They can be curious or dull.

APPIES, yknow an orbed red fruit in which horses like to take big bites from.

I fed my horsies appies all the time.
I miss my horsies.
They helped me cause I'm autistic.
I love horsies.
But then my horsie had a bad leg so grandpa sent her to the abbatoir.
My uncle said they turned her into glue.
But I miss her lots.
Then we leased a horsie but tge lady took her back after a few years.
I miss her to.
Then we had a foster horse but she kicked grandma so grandma sent her to another lady.
I miss them.
Now I have no horsies.
Sometimes I miss giving them appies or carrots.
The foster horse Socks didn't like anyone but me so now Im scared nobody will feed her carrots anymore.

In the previous thread, some anon was baiting saying that they were going to buy a mini to keep indoors. I understand and agree as to why that would be wrong.

However, one of the things I want to do is to have a house where one wing is open-access and specially designed so that the Horses are free to wander in-doors to visit with me or just chill inside if they want.

So a barn then?
>>
>>2281625
My mother's best friend has a kitchen window over the sink that her horse pokes his head through. He gets extra treats that way and he says hello every morning. That's kinda the dream for me.
>>
>>2281625
That's okay. As long as you understand a horse is not a dog, and you don't treat it that way, then there's no problem.

I too would like to own a house one day where my horsies can wander in.

>>
>>2281625
There's a place I know where a shetland wanders in the kitchen. I don't think he's supposed to but it happens.

Instead of having a house a horse can get inside why not live in an open plan barn? With all your human stuff at the top on a platform and horse stuff underneath?
>>
>>2281625

I don't think anyone would take issue with that provided the indoors parts the horses can access are safe (for example, high ceilings and big rooms so there's no risk of the horse becoming cast). Most horses probably would prefer being outside unless the weather is terrible, but they're nosy animals so they'd likely wander in quite a bit, it would be a nice set-up.
>>
>>2281686
That is neat but I never liked the idea of constantly giving a Horse treats, you want to form a bond that goes deeper then them just seeing you as a source of food.

Plus, they probably already see us as being incredibly selfless in that we give them so much hay and feed. Never taking any for ourselves.

That reminds me of a favorite amusing moment with a Horse when I went to pass her a few flakes of hay into her stall.

I swore I heard her say: "Oh thanks! This is delicious! You should have some too!" She then grabbed a huge mouthful and deliberately shoved it in my face and down the front of my shirt. I was laughing, coughing and spitting out bits of dry grass, so adorable that I wasn't even mad.

>>2281689
Not the same anon but it reminded me of it and I completely understand that they are different from Dogs.

It's the incredible sensitivity they have from evolving as prey-animals that makes them that way.

Yet, It's also part of their gift, I've read Tao of Equus and other Horse books and have some practical experience with them.

That receptivity to sensation and emotion gets into some awe-inspiring territory. If you've been around them enough, you know that People are not joking when they claim that they can be psychic.

Wrong. The horse itself doesn't smell bad. Your fucking cat smells worse.

The only things that smell bad are when you don't take fucking care of it and it begins to stand in its own shit, so a really neglected paddock and your mom

They can smell sour if they've rolled in shite. The majority have a bouquet of Cinnamon and Sweet-grass. To the point where I've spent time with my face buried in their manes just enjoying that scent.

Have you ever been bitten or kicked by a horse, /an/?
>>
>>2284797
I've been lucky so far, so I've never been kicked, though it's been close a few times. As for bites, unless they get the drop on you (as in, bite from behind your back), it's pretty easy to avoid the bites. I'm talking about a full on bite though, not lighter nipping.

My foot has been stepped on more times than I can count though, and that's never fun.

Really, it's not so bad if they step on your foot while they're in locomotion (as in, they're continuously walking).

What's bad is when they step on your foot, and then stop moving and put their weight on it. That hurts considerably more.

I got bitten on the face by a racehorse. Not sure what its problem was. It looked very sleepy and suddenly came alive when I got close.

It got my upper lip and nose and pulled, and I needed stitches in my lip.

There was a hole in the side of my nose that air was bubbling in and out of. That was pretty cool.

It's amazing how little pain you feel when you're in shock, I suppose. I was very calm.

Bitten, yes. Kicked, yes. Stepped on, yes. It actually hurts *less* to get stepped on by the big guys because with their giant feet, the weight is distributed over a greater surface area. The 600lb pony with the itty bitty stabby little feet is the real SOB you don't want stepping on you.

This is true but It's not like It's never reciprocated. Some repressed Horse-Fucker in the stable is going to fire off standard retorts like: "Herp-Derp! Standing heat! Go back to /mlp/ Horse-rapist! She was signaling to the Stallion over the next hill! It's just your perverted wish-full thinking! She pinned you because she was trying to crush -and drown- a fly!"

The denial has to be that powerful for them to think that they are not like people who would do it with a Horse but you can acknowledge that are attractive and that they can find us just as attractive. Unlike us, they never put limits on expressing their desire.

I haven't been around Stallions enough to see if one of them would get attracted to me, I hope not but Mares . . . Holy schniekes, it isn't fair in some ways that the act is considered so taboo, you can tell exactly what they are feeling towards you and it can be this heart-trampling love and desire fixated on you.

It's equal parts mind-boggling, frightening and hilariously flattering. No wonder It's such a buried under-current between us. That's pretty close to how we feel around people we are in love with.

>>2287873
Shit you not and to give an example, I use to have a warm relationship with this one Mare who would grab at my belt-buckle and try to shove her muzzle down the front of my pants . . . At some point, I had a freakishly lucid dream where she actually did exactly what she wanted to do.
>>

When a mare is attracted to me I feel extremely similar to when a girl 4 years younger than me was crushing on me super badly in high school, or when one of the disabled people I work with tries to express amorous feelings towards me.

Jesus is this all the fem anons can think about?
>>
>>2289165
why would people give their horses for free?
>>
>>2289419
For a number of things, but mostly it all boils down to an inability to care for their animals. They might be unable to feed them, not have enough land, are too poor. At this point they're probably in a situation where the horse needs a new home asap, so instead of bothering with pricing they just list them for free.
It could also be something as simple as someone needs to move next week and has to get rid of their horse quickly, so, bam, free horse.

For that specific one, chances are she needs to be retired and they just don't have the space for a yard ornament.

It's around 30 for most horses, Arabians aren't an exception. Some will live into their 40s though.

You literally can't give away many horses. If they're old or chronically lame or ill, they're very expensive, otherwise useless pets that demand a lot of your time. Even young, healthy horses are often nearly worthless if they're untrained or just an unremarkable horse that isn't really good at anything. Taking on a horse is a big commitment in terms of time and money, and there's more horses than there are people ready to make that commitment.

>>2289652

Ponies are mostly landraces - they've evolved that way because they've mostly been left to fend for themselves in harsh conditions, not because people thought they looked super kawaii. It depends on the location though - steppe and grassland horses tend to be taller and more horse-like while cold-weather and island breeds have more pony traits, but generally, pony breeds have been fucked around with less than horse breeds and they tend to be intelligent, hardy little animals.

As for work, yes, ponies have been used for everything, just like donkeys which are still widely used today - small, hardy animals are often more efficient than a big horse. Although historical films may give the impression that everyone galloped around on majestic Friesians, the majority of horses ridden throughout history were either pony-sized or actual pony breeds, and several breeds of pony (Dales, Fell, Highland, New Forest, to use some UK examples) are big enough to be a comfortable ride for an adult, strong enough to do draught work and agile and fast enough to hunt or compete as sports ponies. Small, nimble breeds have been used as chariot and harness animals as well as pack ponies and for light draught work. Even the very small breeds like Shetlands have been widely used for hauling and carrying and ploughing fields, so yeah, pretty versatile.

Oh and to Clarify, you might be thinking of miniature horses. Now THOSE have shit tons of health issues.

Also there are horse people out there who still think ponies are the worse things ever in terms of genetics, especially conformation, but fuck them. They all want their horses to be Quarterhorses, Thoroughbreds, or Warmbloods. And we're not far off from that either.

Even the Pony of The Americas registry, which began from an accidental cross of a Appaloosa Mare and a Shetland Stallion, is now actively filtering out the "pony" out of the breed.

Why does my horse have itchy tits? A long while ago, she started pawing at her belly with her back like she was colicing but it turned out that she just has itchy teats. When I itch them, she goes nuts and stars gnawing on stuff and spreading her legs out. I guess i'd want my tits itched too if I couldn't reach them, but is she just a freak or something?

It's probably nothing to worry about. All horses have a sweet spot. If she's getting lots of dirt or mud up there when she lays down that could be the cause of it.
Unless it seems like it really bothers her, or there's some kind of rash or something I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just pick her tits out every once in a while and she'll love you.

Cheers for the replies.

I was concernedly surprised to hear my mother say she'd ridden her shetland pony the other day.

Granted, she's a small woman at like 55kgs max.

She rode the pony alongside my sister who has recently adopted a racehorse. The racehorse really loves his pony friend, and the pony (who my mother bought for my daughter to ride) is a super chilled and generally amazing animal who models calm and proper behavior for the big guy.

I do love that pony.
>>
>>2290085
>>2290160
This shit is hilarious.

I love finding the 'spot' on diffferent horses and watching them act like retards when I scratch it.

My favorite is a really grumpy racehorse at work who is actually pretty dangerous if you're not careful. I love him to bits because I respect his intelligence and that he just wants to be left alone and hates his life in general.

He's very handsome, but when I scratch the small depression over his spine where the saddle sits just behind his withers, his back folds down, his head twists to the side and up and his lips push out and and twitch and he looks like a fucking retard.

>>
>>2290678
Ponies (in the measurement sense, not just Shetlands) are known for being huge assholes. Some of them, I assume, are good people.

Jokes aside, they're known for being pricks. Of course not all of them are like that, and it's nice when you find one that isn't.
>>
>>2290683

To be fair, a lot of them are subjected to small children with no knowledge or regard of how to conduct themselves around horses. They get yanked, kicked, and shoved, all while dealing with overly-loud conditions. If they protest to something a horse wouldn't tolerate for a minute, they get called bastards and get treated even more roughly. It's no wonder they turn sour.
>>
>>2290678
Haha I was just making a joke. Ponies in general though have a reputation for being hormonal cunts.
It's not always their fault though.

We have tons of pony breeds here and no one thinks they're nasty-tempered or aggressive as a whole, they're fine if you treat them firmly and fairly. They're intelligent and will tolerate less shit than horses, but at worst, this means they can be stubborn or too clever for their own good, and it's balanced out by the fact they also tend to be calm, independent and have good common sense compared to horses.
>>

My mother bought a pony for my daughter to ride when we visit.

His owner was an abusive asshole, it turns out, and the pony is terrified of men, especially if there is drinking going on.

First time I met him I literally couldn't get near him, and I'm generally very good with horses and they tend to like me.

It took some time (and feeding him lots of treats) but now I can approach him and scratch him all over his body. He is happy for me to groom him and work with him and my daughter, and he is proving to be an extremely reliable little mount.

He still freaks out if I make a sudden move around him or especially if I'm carrying a stick or something.

He's a tiny little dude and someone thought it necessary to beat him with a stick. Jesus Christ.

I recently started volunteering at a horse rescue, and jesus it's just sad. We have horses that were routinely beaten by 2x4s. There's a few who have yet to even sniff my hand because they're so wary.

>>2291067
Fuck I wish I had time and money to volunteer at a place like that. There is one nearby but unfortunately I gotta work my ass off to make ends meet this year.

Mum rescued an ex-racehorse from a shitty owner when I was a kid. He was a wormy, sick and despondent creature when we got him. He turned into a big, shiny, treasured member of our family after a couple of years (and a lot of money lel). He even won 'best in show' when my little sister's expensive horse took an injury, and she trained him for like 2 weeks for an equestrian event.

That horse was like a brother to me. I was so blessed to grow up around him and the others.

Dunno if you're going to find a peer-reviewed source or anything, but animal shelters often have experience with this - it's not uncommon to get a dog or cat in that pisses and cowers or hides at the sound of a male voice and has to be slowly re-introduced to men. I haven't personally met a pet scared of women so far, but I would guess they're out there too. You definitely get pets that are scared of kids versus adults too.

so, they posted this picture on a news site, saying the horse was taken to the burial of his owner. They say the horse neighed, stomped and then put his head close to the cofin, like in the pic, as if to say good bye.

do you think the horse really knows what is going on? Does the horse know that corpse is his dead owner?

>>2292788
>Doubt

>>2292279

they know what dead stuff smells like and they can also smell their owner in there plus they DO notice when their owner is gone after a while.

those stories are usually blown out of proportion and of course mostly it is made up but in this case some of that unusual horse behavior wouldn't be surprising and horses can definitely mourn like dogs and some cats do, too.
>>
>>2292821
Yeah, it's possible, but unlikely.
Horses certainly do mourn. If two horses are friends, and one dies, it's best to let the live one sniff the dead one, just so he has some closure.

However I would agree, this story is probably way out of proportion and over exaggerated.
>>
>>2292788
i think there's a middle of the road few people consider.

you've got full blown anthromorphization
>"Oh, my dog is so ashamed she got pregnant out of wedlock"

and you've got full blown anthropocentricism >"animals don't feel ignore those screams they're just biological reactions"

but the truth is probably somewhere in the middle. the horse probably does realize it's owner is in there. it probably does feel sad. it is almost certainly not aware of the finality of death nor will it give thought to the concept itself, but can still feel sad in response to what little it has concluded.

You were asking for it
>>
>>2292947
it depends on the individual. I've known horses who developed a designated shitting corner of their paddock.
>>
>>2279787
Depends.

Generally speaking, the older the get, the more relaxed they become.
In my experience mare treat humans better than geldings, who tend to prod and nibble, whereas mares just kind of prod.

Yearlings though are cute, but annoying. Really bitey most of the time.

Personality wise, again, it's varied from horse to horse. We have a super friendly mare, who'd never kick or run you over, and would even go out of her way to make sure she never did either of those things. But the moment you try to put a saddle on her, she goes nuts.
>>
>>2293059
The variety of personalities is once of my favorite things about horses.

I know a mare who will shove her whole head at you for you to wrap your arms around it and scratch her (and it's a massive head, she's the biggest thoroughbred mare I've ever seen.)

Touching her with a grooming brush or trying to rug her is literally dangerous though. She only likes to be touched around her head. Weird.
>>
>>2292878
I think they do know about the finality of death.
some knowledge can be genetic and if something smells funky, doesn't move or doesn't interact in the slightest anymore they know it's dead and won't come back. I think this concept is quite easy to grasp for them so yes, I think they understand the basics of death.
>>
>>2292969
>Bitey Game

yeah, it's a shame humans are so fragile compared to them.
they want to give you some appreciation nibbles and you cramp together into the fetal position in pain and they wonder what they did wrong.

when they do that mutual biting session when they like each other, standing together all calmly it's interesting, compared to what a human can endure, how hard they bite and pull on each others skin/fur and enjoying it. the same force applied to a human would mean some serious pain.

That's a very noble attitude and all, but someone grandly expressing that thought on the internet doesn't change the reality for all the elderly, lame, unbroken and otherwise unrideable horses that are given away or sent for slaughter. Most people with the time and money to own a horse want one they can ride, not one they can just love lots and lots, and there aren't enough homes for horses that can't work.
>>
>>2293134
souldn't they know what death means because they spend their whole lives trying to avoid it, like all prey animals?
>>
>>2293198

It's not even the unrideable ones. There are plenty of well put-together, started young horses being sold for meat. Literally any horse is at risk for it, including suckling foals and hall of famers (such as Ferdinand, the 1987 Horse of the Year who won $3.7 million).

Just like in dogs and cats, you can blame rampant over-breeding. And it's on all levels of the equine world, from pasture pets to multi-million dollar athletes. But in contrast to dogs and cats, the people at the top who have the money to breed 40+ mares for the chance of 1 or 2 good foals are far bigger contributors than BYB's.

Yeah, I could get a perfectly adequate riding horse for free tomorrow if I wanted, we've got a lot of people dumping horses here because they can't afford to keep them any more. It's just even worse when the horse is unbroken or getting old or otherwise not very desirable (we've got tons of small ponies here that are only in demand when they're quiet and well-trained enough for a child, no one wants an 11.2hh two year old). There's only so many people who can afford to keep horses and they can have their pick of a saturated market.

It's like how the dog doesn't know what to do with a car once it catches it.
Many animals fear for their lives but has no comprehension of death.

If you approach a horse with a carrot and say to them

>Eat this carrot or I will kill you

Without any variation they will eat that carrot. This not only proves they understand common but they also have an understanding of death.

What's your favorite part of a horse? I have to say the nostrils. I just like how they form up and blast hot air when they're saying hello.

I don't know of anyone who trains Shetlands and other smaller ponies professionally. They're always just kind of there in every scenario.

Also why doing english people (uk or school) hate anything that isn't a warmblood?
>>

I know this is gonna sound /pol/ish but the worst people I've seen animals react around have been blacks. I have seen plenty of great black riders, trainers, and so on, but the non horse/animal types just have the most horrible posture and physical mannerisms that scare the fuck out of animals. It also doesn't help that many blacks have some unearthly fear of animals so they always act skittish, making things worse.
>>
>>2293587
do you think the horses who dislike black people act like that because they don't see black people often?
>>
>>2293596
Yes but not the complete reason. It's similar to how many horses act skittish around guys. Except for some industries and the usual hard labor guy, horses are surrounded by women.

And black/white colors stand out alot more to horses then others (horses can see yellow as well, and last I heard they were researching if they see blues too), so thats + 1 on the weirdometer for horses.

Acting REALLY weird is just more problems for blacks with animals. I've seen way too many dogs go straight to attack mode when they see black people for some reason, owner around or not. You know, not the regular barking at something coming close to home. More the I THINK YOURE ACTUALLY GONNA DO SOMETHING BAD SO MY BARKING IS GONNA BE MORE AGGRESSIVE AND ALOT MORE GROWLING type of barking.

>people with the time and money to own a horse want one they can ride, not one they can just love lots and lots
I rescued my two girls from the kill pen and have no desire to ride.
If they want to hang out in my back yard (an acre or so) and eat hay then they're more than welcome
I can't rescue them all but I can do this much and I go out and hang out and talk and groom them

That's why my original post reads "MOST people", anon, though you seem to have cut that out. I have an unrideable grumpy old TB mare myself, but if I had the land/time/money, I could easily fill a thousand acres with the horses that people are currently trying to dump. It's still a big problem in the horse world even if you personally rescued two horses out of the thousands milling around in kill pens.

Not weird at all if you know and trust the horse.

If it's skittish it can be scary for both parties.

Sometimes if you lift a horse's foot they will be lazy and start leaning on you.
>>
>>2293600
Horses can definitely react to appearance.

There is a guy at work that struggles to bond with them. Partly, this is because he is large, broad and covered in tattoos and piercings.

Probably more because he isn't calm and reacts to a horse's fear with exasperation, frustration or even anger.

I saw him kicked by a very anxious 2yo filly once, he claimed she was aggressive towards him but she was literally terrified at him yelling, 'settle, SETTLE!"

Not to be a smug faggot about it or anything (I've been rekt by horses before myself) but it took me 10 seconds to approach her and catch her just because I was calm.

This.
Horses hate loud, aggressive and hectic cunts.
They love having cool animal or human buddies around to chill with.

They also are INCREDIBLY focused on body language.
If you happen to understand that language really well, which some people do, you can do some really rad shit like training a horse almost silently and with some oddly smooth moves or getting aggressive horses to calm the fuck down.
Really interesting stuff but most don't have the patience to get into it and learn it since this takes literally years.

Same shit happened to my and my gf.

Was pretty cute when we pulled apart for a moment and this big brown muzzle slowly inserted itself between our faces.

I assume he thought we were eating something and was interested.

That, or because horses explore shit with their mouths, especially bored as fuck racehorses like him, he thought we were examining something interesting.

the video says "playing", but for me it looks like they are trying to murder each other. What do you guys thing: were they fighting or playing?
>>
>>2295164
Hard to say. They went pretty rough at each other at the beginning, but then kind of cooled off. Probably a bit of both.
>>
what's up with stallions? At one moment they are peacefully sniffing another horse, then suddenly they freak out.
>>
>>2295179
>then suddenly they freak out.
>freak out
that's not freaking out. it's part of their (to humans) odd social behavior. for some reason they love to do those calm greetings and suddenly jerk all over the place suddenly and then begin anew. it's just a horse thing you don't have to understand I guess.
>>
>>2295171
Yeah. At times they both had their ears pinned back too, but not always. I would say it's a mix of play and fight.

>>2295538
For starters, you need to look for a place with horses...

>>2295594
I don't know, I learned to ride on a goat farm and it has it's pros.
>>
>>2295637
While I'm not exactly doubting that, I feel like riding on a goat's back might be a little evil.
>>
>>2295678
They were huge goats and I weighed less than a bag of sugar back then.
>>
>>2295971
Fair enough. Well, I suppose the basis is the same. Still, you should search for a place with horses, as I'm not sure even big goats can bear your weight after you've grown. I mean, how big are we talking?
>>
>>2296147
Fifteen billion lightyears from nose to tail.
